A special assignment ~


I must admit, going to school, homework and other such little necessities are way too much for me. One go 'round was enough for me and even with my children's homework, I keep my advice simple and brief. If it gets too complicated or a little too much thinking is involved ~ my husband is just the one to help! He truly should have been a history professor. He loves it so.


I worked so hard in high school to make good grades and graduated with straight A's in the top of my class! I worked very hard for each of those little A's and was totally burned out when I graduated. As much as there is to absorb and learn in this world academically, I pretty much was over it by then!


Well, as I've grown older, I've discovered that I am a selective learner. (And pretty much a selective doer as well.) I learn about what I love or enjoy. I actually taught myself how to sew and for my second project made a dress shirt for my husband! It wasn't perfect but was quite an undertaking for a beginner.


I have just a little bit of news . . . I've been given an assignment today. By a wonderful editor of an art magazine to write my very first article about my artwork that I've previously submitted to them. And how do I feel about my "homework?" I am about to burst with excitement!!! This kind of homework, I will gladly do! Now, let's just hope they have someone really good with English, punctuation and grammar to help me a little along the way . . .

Dawn, you, of all people, don't need 'help along the way' by anyone! You are as gifted a writer as you are a doer, and anyone who reads your blog will agree. Congratulations on this good news. I will wait anxiously to hear more about it. I am excited with you!

Your beautiful squares arrived safe & sound and are dancing through our parade, anxiously awaiting what's to come next. These are glorious! Love just pours from them.

I adore the scent that spilled from the pkg, no doubt by accident but nontheless mesmerizing. lol
